PM Gaston Browne announces that Parliament has been dissolved

18

Prime Minister Hon. Gaston Browne has indicated Parliament has been dissolved ahead of the next general elections.

There were earlier reports that the legislature had been prorogued.

The dissolution effectively means there are now no members in the two houses of the bicameral legislature.

Electors will vote for 17 members of the House of Representatives on the date to be announced by Prime Minister Browne.

That announcement is expected imminently.

    • That’s coming how you can catch yourself after the election
      Labour continues to be Antigua and Barbuda Savior(after 76 and 2014).
      On election day, we voting “Labour All the Way !”

    • The time has now come to get rid of the blue UPP flies once & for all. They need to be dumped in history of Antigua’s politics

      • People, remember, a vote for any of the ABLP parliamentarian, is a vote for Gaston the dictator. Stand in unity and vote out Gaston. Come out in droves and get rid of Gaston. Let’s take back our country. The only people benefiting under Gaston’s administration are himself, his wife, his son, his cronies and the so call investors. Local people not getting anything. We are hungry, we cannot survive under Gaston so-called leadership. Get rid a he fast or else we are in big big trouble.

  1. Suffer with labour!
    Red is dead!

    A government that only cares about enriching themselves, they have created hardship on the citizens of Antigua, they have not deliver a stable and growing economy . Monies are owed to many people overtime back pay. If they can’t pay workers they can’t run the country. Vote them out

  2. Let us keep out MR. IMF ROMANTIC RHYTHMS WADADLI POWER CAN’T ABST HOTEL RIPOFF ABIB COLLAPSER BANKING-SECTOR COLLAPSER ANTI-UWI FIVE ISLANDS CAMPUS BAICO COLLAPSER ETC

  4. YES, YES, YES!

    At last a chance for Antiguans to show the world that we are no longer politically inept, and will never again put up with self-enrichment, cronyism, nepotism and self serving politicians.

    I’m so happy at present, that I want to SING and DANCE with my fellow citizens of Antigua & Barbuda.

    What an amazing opportunity to change the course of history folks – just like the recent Brazilian 🇧🇷 elections, the electorate, they had had enough of the previous incumbents, and decided to kick them out of office, for virtually the same issues as us.

    Many other countries in recent times have done likewise.

    We can now do the same.

    I’M SO HAPPY, AS YOU CAN TELL – LET’S SHOW THE WORLD THAT WE MEAN – POLITICAL – BUSINESS THIS TIME!

  5. Polling Results 2023.

  6. Jumbee_Picknee would like to know, will the Senator who got sworn in and only served a couple of days, not even enough fir him – Gardiner, to garner a pay-check, Parliament has being dissolved, so, ABLP wins he serves the next five years(I’m not supposed to judge the future, but – he serves five years), can he then retire, and get full pension for the rest of his(god, I’m not doing your job, but), the rest of his life #full pension. The kid is still in #Political_Pampers. He ain’t even had time to get to pulls-up like Asot or Melvin. Molwyn and Robin already got #Bed_Pans.

    Oh! Yes! While we’re at #Dissolving, how about dissolving some of those #Human v#Ambassadorships. We can go virtual, for diplomacy or diplomatic discussions. Your Pandemic showed how irrelevant most human ambassadors are, especially, in a #Budding #Dictatorship!

    The last Parliament can be called, The 🥷🏿 Ninja. They snuck a lot of shit in on the People clandestinely(loans, give-a-ways, take-as-I-like. No questions asked…

    The next session of Parliament with this same Ruling Arm -🪓 The Dictator – This Ruling Arm will be holding an AX 🪓 or two 🪓⛏and it’ll be, a lot of axing going on! Chopping this here! Chopping this there!

    Here’s hoping, that there’s a whole lot of axing, especially with these public officials collecting multiple pay-checks.

    De ‘ole Dutty Peg Foot Bastard!

    ABLP – 10 Seats
    UPP – 5 Seats
    BPM.- 1 Seat
    INDEPENDENT – 1 Seat…Asot Michael makes history in Antigua, Barbuda & Redonda.

    …and, they’re off🏇🎠🐎🐪🐴🧲🐌🐢

    • @Smood – decided to do what you are too lazy to do ie look at the legislation.

      6. (1) Subject to this Act, a pension shall be paid to
      any person who-
      (a) has served as a legislator for two consecutive
      full parliamentary terms or for periods equal in the
      aggregate to not less than 10 years;
      (b) has ceased to be a legislator; and
      (G) either-
      (i) has attained the age of 50 years; or
      (ii) not having attained the age of 50 years, has
      produced medical evidence, by not less than
      two qualified medical practitioners; to the
      satisfaction of the Minister, that he is incapable
      by reason of infirmity of mind or body of
      discharging the duties of a legislator and that
      such infirmity is likely to be permanent

      Clearly he has not served a full term and has not reached 50 so the answer is no

      • @tenman…
        ..you’re channeling #Racon
        ..and, we fully well understand
        ..since, you always have Rancid Red Herring
        …in your hand!
        …to cover, the stench and Ignorance
        …of politicians, looking sympathy and recognition!

        What logical sense does it make, to install a Senator a week before dissolving the Parliament? You can’t be this asinine?
        Then again, many say that you are!

        In jest, comically, I mentioned the Senator’s appointment; however, this is about the millions of dollars in loans which are either mismanaged, misplaced or disappear #Without-A-Trace void of accountability.
        The day the Nation get #INDEPENDENT FORENSIC AUDITING, of each and every Government Agency, many will run like #Cowish or #Stinning_Nettle greasing their asses.

    • What happened to 17 seats win you acolytes were previously bragging about?

      Goodness how times and predictions have changed … mi haffi laugh 🤣🤣🤣
